Rasheed, Muhammad. "Victors Write History as Part of The Conquering." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 27 Jun 2021. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
ARTIST'S DESCRIPTIONThis #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by the current national discussion over whether the 1619 Project and anti-racism scholarship findings should be taught in our public schools. The reason why it's a thing at all is because of the concept that "history is written by the victors," and the white racist aristocracy believes they have a right to dictate what is true in the historical narrative -- as part of the spoils of war -- because they conquered the Black American former slave class and successfully prevented our ethnic group from economic inclusion into the competitive free markets as equals to them. In other words, to paraphrase Jim Carrey, racists are afraid of being replaced.

So much have I learned about ppl I used to think highly of.
Muhammad Rasheed - The worst thing about the Trump presidency is the 'tax cuts for the rich' that put the tax burden on the poorest Americans.
All the rest of that stuff we've known for all the 44 presidencies that preceded him, we're just trying to pin the whole thing on Trump as if he invented it. This is why we all need to be educated in the Truth of history, so we'll stop being dumb.
